Dye Your Skin Green Halloween Costumes

Alien Halloween Costumes with Green Skin

Green Skinned Aliens

Dyeing your skin green as part of a Halloween Costume may sound a bit weird. But trust me, I have done it dozens of times with no ill effects (at least that I have noticed). And having green skin definitely makes your costume more interesting  and gets attention.

Why green you ask? I have tried other colors, but green looks especially strange and exotic. And green skin lends itself to lots of Halloween costumes. Witches and Vampires with green skin are scarier and of course all alien costumes will benefit from green skin- E.T. anyone?

Here are some other costume ideas that are good with green skin:

Statue of the Jolly Green Giant

Green Giant

  • Jolly Green Giant – just create a over-the-shoulder one piece, and add some artificial (or real) leaves with glue.
  • Green Man – Include leaves and other natural items on your costume and carry a wooden staff.
  • Peas in a Pod – Green skin, green outfit, and green balloons glued down the front of your chest  0r back.

The best costumes for this shows off some of your green body. People will often ask, “Are you green…all over?” You just wink and smile.

Other ways to get green

Procedure:

You will need one large bottle of liquid green vegetable dye (food coloring).  (Do not use fabric dye which is toxic).

Stand in the shower or bath tub. It is a good idea to have some water in the bottom of the shower or bath so that it dilutes the dye. Food dye sometimes  can stain tiles, although it can be scrubbed off easily.

Mix some green dye with 16 ounces of water in a bowl. Start with a small amount of dye (about an ounce0 and add more  after you try it on your skin to get the effect you are looking for. You can put the dye everywhere, it has never irritated anyone that I know of, but of course you don’t need it in places that no one will see.

After the dye is everywhere that you want it, let it dry by itself as much as possible. You can pat it with paper towels to speed the process.

Cautions:

Although my friends and I have done this dozens of times, I obviously am not assuming any liability. Try this at your own risk!

Almost all the green color can be washed off your skin with soap and a good scrubbing with a washcloth, but a little may remain in creases etc. It may take a couple of more showers to be completely gone.

The dye will remain in your hair longer that it will on your skin. Of course, depending on your age, this is a very popular look.

Your bedsheets will be green and possibly ruined if you go to bed before you wash most of the green off. On the other hand, waking up with someone green can be interesting.

Halloween can be so fun!

Try being green. Once you do, you may want to make it a habit. You’ve been warned.

Oh, and red hair looks especially great with green skin!

Sexy Burlesque Costumes For More Fun on Halloween

Burlesque posterBurlesque was born in England and the term “burlesque” referred to variety show performances. These shows were very popular from the 1860s all the way through the 1940’s. Staged in cabarets, clubs and theaters, burlesque shows featured bawdy comedy and female striptease.

Although there were some burlesque shows in the United States, it was toward the end of the 1900’s, that these shows really flourished in the states. They featured comics, but the main attraction was women singing, dancing and posing in exotic, sexy costumes. Recently there has been a revival of burlesque as more and more people are attracted to the glamour and the wonderful burlesque costumes.

However, this year, in 2011, it was the movie Burlesque that skyrocketed the popularity of burlesque dancing and costumes. The movie featured the talents of Cher and Christina Aguilera, who, along with other dancers, performed several exciting and provacative performances. Check out the video below.

Hair

If you are a woman you have some of your own options as well. Long straight hair is very popular on the Jersey Shore. There is also the ever popular Snooki bump.
